Unai Emery has a counter view to former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger on Mesut Ozil’s retirement from Germany, as he believes the midfielder’s retirement will benefit Arsenal, according to the Metro.
The 30-year-old midfielder retired from the German national team in controversial circumstances after a disastrous world cup outing in July.
He cited racism and discrimination as his reasons for quitting. He was made a scapegoat in Germany after taking a photo with Turkey president Recap Tayyip Erdogan.
Wenger believes the playmaker may lose motivation as he no longer has international football to look forward to
“I believe that Germany need Ozil,” he told SportBild earlier this week.
“I hope that Low can convince him to come back. Ozil is a super football player, he was not the worst at the World Cup.”
